University of Cincinnati considering Brayden Coombs for defensive coordinator

Sharing is caring!

Former Detroit Lions special teams coordinataor Brayden Coombs was dismissed by the team in late December after allegedly going rogue with a fake punt call that wasn’t approved by interim head coach Darrell Bevell.

It wans’t expected to be long for Coombs, who helped lead Detroit’s special teams to new heights despite a poor overall 2020 campaign, to find new employment. And it appears that he’s on the verge of doing just that.

According to a report from NFL Insider Chris Burke, Coombs is among the candidates being considered for the defensive coordinator position at the University of Cincinnati:

Coombs has a previous connection to the city of Cincinnati, having coached with the Bengals for a decade after playing at the University of Miami (Ohio).

The position became open at the university following the departure of Marcus Freeman to Notre Dame.
